Seems like if I go that route, I can choose one that incorporates BB Connect or a Palm or Microsoft based device.
My office is not very BB friendly but they do have the enterprise server software running allowing me to not have to use the desktop redirector. They also support something called GoodLink but don't know much about it.
My questions are:
1. Does anyone know how Palm and Microsoft devices work for email? I'd really love to get soemthing like the Samsung 730 or even a Treo 650, but am very nervous that they wont offer the ease on email. I'm ok with simply having to deal with the devices only pulling email every 15 minutes. Is that really the only down side? Do you have to use a desktop redirector? I'm assuming that my work doesn't offer anything beyond BES and the GoodLink I mentioned. Not sure if they are on Exchange 03.
2. Does anyone know if this GoodLink thing is an equivalent to BB email service?
3. If I go with a BB Connect device, is it as good and as simple as having a traditional Blackberry? In replacine the ones I've had to date, it seems that its very simple for our work system to realize the new model replaced the old one, just by synching. Doe a BB Connect device work the same way?
Appreciate your help.
Why did you leave BB7250 from verizon out? Its the fastest one out there and has many improvements over the 7750. I think its something you might want to try.
You might want to check out the SK65. See the link below for a complete list of BB supported devices, http://www.blackberry.com/products/l...ct/index.shtml
